    Application rejected.

    Please take the time to fill out the application correctly. A little thought wouldn't hurt.

    Thanks,

    lol why was this rejected? Fwiw this is my brother and he will be one of the most active games in the new league... just because he might not have time to fill out an application t o tell you what is going on with his life why does that mean he gets rejected?

    Every1 has to fill out the app correctly, not just 1 word answers. If your your brother can't do that, why would TF think he will stick around for the long run. If he can't fill out properly, I hit u with the peace sign as you close the door on the way out.

    yes, that's right. We are not a community of guys who show up and play games. We're a COMMUNITY of guys who take the time to our leagues seriously and our membership at TF seriously.

    Filling out an application in that manner only speaks to what this potential member might bring to our COMMUNITY... not just our leagues. And based on that application, i would reject too.

    I find this very funny... I am a member of several online leagues, and the one here has by far the least community feel of any of them. I think you guys take yourselves a little too seriously and its pretty funny... If you look at our other threads in our leagues there is constant chatter, we're all on each others aim lists, we're constantly talking. Here... I can hardly get in touch with people most of the time people don't respond to aim, the lists for members aren't even up to date with contact info and/or members that are even in the league.

    This is why this just baffles me, I'll have him fill out the app more thoroughly but these are the complaints for which I think make my argument much more valid than yours.

    If your league doesn't have activity or a community feel then who is at fault for that? Probably the people who have been here a month and only have 20 posts, 25% of them being complaints about our site in these last two threads.

    Just because this guy is your brother doesn't make him exempt from the rules and procedures we follow...

    lol ... if you can't take criticism you can't grow... I'm not at fault as in my first two days I completed a trade and played a game for a team that hadn't had an owner... please tell me its my fault :) And I've already told my brother to do the interview process further.

    Why should people take the time to get this person in a league if he can't take the time to fill out the app properly?

    Do you think that because it was "rejected" he can't play here? No, probably not. He just needs to edit the original post and fill it out right.
    You on the other hand need to stop acting like a jackass.

    Such as asking someone if they have "reading comprehension problems"?

    Yeah that was definately meant more as a joke than an insult but rereading that it does look insulting instead of comedic... I apologize for that.

    contructive criticism.. we have no problem with. Acting like a jackass because your brother failed to properly fill out an application is what we have a problem with.

    If you don't like TF, please, by all means... take your league play somewhere else, it sounds like you have other options that you enjoy more, so by all means.. excercise those options.

    We don't need or want people that don't like it here.

    I countered an argument that said that the league app helps make the league have more continuinity... now would I be trying to get my brother in and join ANOTHER league if I didn't enjoy playing? ? I'm done in this thread, trash me more if you want.

    so stop your crying and go somewhere else. TF is a great community, if you don't think so then shut your mouth and leave. Save us all a headache.

    There won't be any more bashing.

    Let's all move on like adults.

    I would lock this thread, but I'll give jackalackin a chance to redo his app.

    i think he meant that your being very generous by offering a redo on the application at this point considering some of the comments made in this thread...

    but yea, I would re-consider an updated app.
